The 2016 Billboard Music Awards have come and gone, and the show was pretty standard fare. Only you might have noticed that a particular subset of Hollywood's young luminaries were nowhere to be found.
We've gotten used to seeing their faces, well, everywhere, so it was a little odd that the whole cast of ladies were MIA on Sunday night. Who are we talking about, exactly? That would be Taylor Swift & company. That includes Gigi and Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss, and Lily Aldridge. (At least Zendaya showed up!)
Here's a rundown of where the girls were tonight:
— Taylor Swift is at boyfriend Calvin Harris' hospital bedside in L.A. after his horrible car accident.
— Karlie Kloss is living it up at Cannes.
— Kendall Jenner is falling victim to pirate pranks in Cannes.
— Selena Gomez was playing a show on her Revival tour in Canada.
— Bella Hadid didn't accompany her boo The Weeknd because she was celebrating Naomi Campbell's birthday.
— Gigi is presumably still running around NYC in a crop top.
— Martha Hunt was at a friend's wedding in North Carolina.
— Lily Aldridge is keeping it low-key in L.A. with her daughter.
